Pours very dark with a very very slight head. Immediately the aromas hit you maple, coffee, some smokiness. The taste is rich and luxurious with slightly sweet flavors resembling the aromas, coffee, maple, smoky bacon. Absolutely delicious. The mouthfeel is amazing, it coats your mouth in velvety richness. I could literally find nothing wrong with this beer. I wish there were 10,000 bottles.

An Imperial Maple Bacon.. This beer has everything Maple Bacon has going for itself except it bit stronger... This beer is full of flavor leaving a thick lining on any glass you drink this from. Coffee, Smokey, Sweet This beer will modify your palate so have one of these last if you want to be able to taste the other beers you are drinking. jc1762 (1652) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 15, 2016
Thanks Huhzubendah for sharing the bottle and my first perfect beer! Poured into a snifter showing thin rims of coffee, pitch black center, and a finger of latte colored foam.
The nose is an intense mix of maple and coffee that blends together to form equally intense notes of milk chocolate, french vanilla, cappuccino with a light bacon undertone becoming more apparent upon warming up. I could go on forever, but each note deceptively changes into another as the beer warms.
The palate is fully and smoothly carbonated with a light foamy body - the perfect airy porter mouth feel. Flavors of the same on the palate. Moderately intense vanilla showing constantly throughout on the background ending on a lightly sweet yet cappuccino/latte bitterness with the vanilla and coffee seeming to go on forever on the linger.
